Peach & Maple, Almond Crusted Galette
With the end of stone fruit season looming, I’m doing my best to eat as many peaches as possible! I’ve been using them in my morning yogurts, salads, tartines and desserts — they go with almost everything. For tonight’s dinner, I needed to use my ripe peaches and make something quick and easy. To give the usual peach galette a bit of flare I added two ingredients: maple syrup to celebrate the start of Autumn and almond because it’s my favorite flavor. This recipe serves four people.
Peach and Maple, Almond Crusted Galette Recipe:
- 2 cups All-purpose flour
- 1 cup of almond flour
- 1 tablespoon almond extract
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- A pinch of salt
- 2 sticks of unsalted butter (room temperature)
- Approximately 1/2 cup of ice water
Whisk the flours, sugar and salt together. Cut the butter into smaller pieces and mix into the flour mixture. Add ice water to the mixture and continue to stir until it becomes dough (you may need extra water). Once the dough has formed, mix it into a ball and allow to chill for at least one hour before using — it’ll be easier to work with!
Maple Peach Assembly
- Finely slice 4–6 peaches (I used yellow)
- 2 teaspoons of maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon of brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons of butter (room temperature)
Once the peach mixture is done, take the dough out of the refrigerator. Flatten it out on a baking sheet (it should measure ~10 inches) and pour the peaches into the dough. Gently wrap the dough around the edge of peaches and bake at 375F until the crust is golden brown. This should take 30–40 minutes. Let it cool and dig in!
